BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2017-05-03 20:00:00 (link to chat)Does German Marquez pitch well enough to make him worth rostering in a 16 tm dynasty?
(David from Denver)
I think so, even though Rockies pitchers always scare me because of the environment (humidor notwithstanding). There just seems to be a limit on value (at least for starters) (David Brown)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)There appears to be a good chance that German Marquez and Cody Reed may both make the starting rotations of the Rocks and Reds, respectively out of spring training. If that is the case, what kind of numbers do you think they will they put up and do you have a preference of one over the other?
(The Quiet Man from NY via Philippines)
I'd rather have Marquez. I don't think either gives you pretty numbers this year. I like both ok in the long run, but don't see more than a mid-rotation starter in either dude. (Matthew Trueblood)
2017-03-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of this Kevin Garnett-esqu trade in a 30 team dynasty league: Andrew Benintendi for German Marquez, Jacob Nix, Brock Stewart, Chance Adams, Taylor Trammell, Luis Urias, TJ Friedl, and Ricardo Cespedes?
(Bob from Georgia)
I have no idea whether this is a good trade or not. It depends too much on too many things I don't know. I don't play dynasty leagues. Best guess: if you're willing to trade present for future, I really like the idea and several of these names. Go for it. (Matthew Trueblood)
2016-10-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)German Marquez just sneaked on to MLB's top 100 prospects, can you tell us more about him? Future FV?
(Cole Whittier from Pasadena, CA)
I wrote about Marquez earlier this year (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=29420). I don't think all that much has changed, and I still think he's better suited for the pen. Probably not Top 101 for me, because I like that type of guy to have a better chance of starting or a better chance of being an impact reliever, but solid major league arm. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-08-11 14:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on German Marquez and Chance Adams? Do you see Marquez developing the secondary stuff to pitch towards the front of a rotation, and is it still a relief profile with Adams given his success this year in AA? Thank you.
(Tim from Jacksonville)
I don't know much about Chance Adams, but I like German Marquez as a potential mid-rotation piece. He has the delivery to start and just needs a bit more consistency with his secondary stuff. I know that's a big "if," but he has the building blocks to do it. (J.P. Breen)
2016-01-29 11:00:00 (link to chat)Where does German Marquez rank now that he's been traded to the Rockies?
(traindoggah from space)
He continues to not rank among the 101 best prospects in baseball. In the org, he's gone from one deep system to another. He wouldn't be among my top-20 in Colorado, off the top of my head. (Top 101 Chat with Craig Goldstein)
